About the property

Roman Forum apartment-studios

The ancient and private building (recently completely renovated) is STRATEGICALLY situated just a few steps far away the "Roman Forum" & "Colosseum" park/museum, quite INSIDE the very Heart of the 'Old' Historical Centre ('Monti' district / "Rione #1").

In the same street, there is also a METRO-SUBWAY stop. It could be very useful to reach the 'Termini' train station (#1 stop only) as the FCO airport.

The neighbourhood is charming and truly characteristic; the narrow streets (typical of Old Historical centre) are filled with local shops, groceries, bakeries, wine bars and lots of restaurants. Perfect if you want to feel like you live there !

Then, "as a starter", before the arrival, I will send my personal list of suggestions for local restaurants, food markets, coffee bar, atm ....and more ;-)

The private building, upon restoring, was parted into #4 independent open space studio-suites. Each studio-apartment is now provided with ensuite bathroom and well equipped kitchen corner. You can reserve just #1 unit and/or up to all the #4 units. If all the #4 units, it means that you will enjoy the entire building ONLY for you !

Hi

Jess and I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the advice that you gave at the start of our holiday. It was very helpful!

Also we would strongly reccomend this accomodation to anybody staying in Rome. All of the main sites are within walking distance (the furthest away is the Vatican City which is an hours slow walk or you could get the Metro which is only 2 minutes from the appartment). The appartment it's self was very clean and nicely furnished. And the best bit about this accomodation is the help that you get when you arrive. We were given advice on restraunts, markets, sites and various other things.

Thanks again.

Simon and Jessica

Great location, beautiful studio apartment, not set up for longer term stays

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, but we gave our host a number of small improvements to recommend, generally for those staying more than a couple of nights. We were there six nights. The place was set up more like a boutique hotel than an apartment.

The location was so good that we walked almost everywhere except the Vatican, so forget a transit pass, just buy a few tickets at a tobacco shop.

It is a pretty small space, and Alessio obviously carefully considered how to make everything fit. The bathroom was beautiful, but getting in and out of the tub was tricky.

Alessio was helpful, but could have been more responsive.

We had a very nice stay in Rome.

We stayed in unit D, which is one level up from the street.

Feel Like A Local

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this apartment. If you're a tourist in Rome you have found your home.

My wife and I put location above everything else when looking for a place to stay and Alessio's apartment was outstanding. Seriously, at one end of the street is the subway and at the other end, look to your left, you can see the Colosseum. It is seriously that close. Very easy to get to anything and everywhere.

Alessio provides you with detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment from the airport that made arrival very easy. We also had some wifi issues and he came over at 21:30 to check the router. A top notch host.

The other aspect of this apartment we really liked was the surrounding streets, restaurants, markets for groceries and shops... but not touristy, a little more local. Some of our best meals were there.

*I recommend Urbana 47 and the place directly across, Vecchia Roma. Yum.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Rome, you have found it. You will not be disappointed.

Very nice appartment in Rome

  • 4 of 5

The appartment was very well located, very clean and nicely decorated. It was close to the Colosseum and Roman Forum and a subway station.

The neighbourhood was lively by day but really quiet to rest at night. Alessio was very gentle. We spent wonderful days there. We would surely come back and recommend it to our relatives and friends.

Perfect Location! Steps from sites & restaurants

  • 5 of 5

This location provided everything that we needed and more for our stay in Rome. Located steps from Colosseum there are many great restaurants, pizzerias and gelato stores close by. The suite itself is very clean, comfortable and provides all the accessories you will need for your stay including; small kitchen (with accessories), shower, tv, wi-fi and comfortable bed. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with and provided a variety of helpful tips on restaurants and things to see in the area. Would HIGHLY recommend!

situacion inmejorable

  • 4 of 5

Un pequeño apartamento muy bien acondicionado con una situacion excelente, para ir a pie a cualquier lugar de la ciudad,y tambien al lado del metro Cavour. En un precioso barrio lleno de tiendas y restaurantes con un ambiente muy tranquilo y acogedor.

El propietario estaba esperándonos a la salida del metro , nos acompañó hasta el alojamiento y nos dió toda clase de explicaciones para conocer la ciudad.

Muy simpático y amable.Gracias Alessio

Recomiendo este apartamento especialmente por su ubicación.

Location: Heart of the Historical centre: 'Roman Forum/Colosseum' area ("Monti" district).

The 'Colosseum' and the ancient 'Roman Forum' park are located less than #5 minutes from this property.... by walk :-)

A METRO/SUBWAY stop (Line 'B' - stop 'Cavour') is also located just 100 meters far away the property. This is a easy and fast connection from/to the FCO airport as for the main train station ('Termini').

From the 'Termini' train station, to reach your property, you can just take the subway and exit at the 1st stop (stop 'Cavour'; only #5 minutes).

The 'Roman Forum/Monti' district was originally one of the most ancient suburbs of Rome. It is in the heart of the historical centre just a stones throw away from the The Colosseum and the Imperial Roman Forum (Foro Romano) and about 10 minutes by walk to the Pantheon and Piazza di Spagna.
